What is the geometry and length of your race frame?
Thomas Jouve: I ride a Pro XXXL frame (22 inches top tube). I like to ride a long bike so my chainstay length is 40cm.
Do you ride with flat pedals when you're just messing about or are you always clipped in?
Thomas Jouve: For sure! I put on the flats when I want to mess around the track or go to the trails.
Are you picky about how much your bike weighs?
Thomas Jouve: Not really, of course I don’t want a really heavy bike but i’m looking for the best compromisse between reliability and stiffness.
Do you like bike maintenance including the cleaning?
Thomas Jouve: I don’t like riding with a dirty bike, so cleaning and bike maintenance don’t bother me.
What's a bike part you change on the regular?
Thomas Jouve: Tubes are probably the thing I change the most on the regular, then tires or grips.
